Cannes, home of the famous Cannes Film Festival, held in May of every year, is one of the best-known French cities on the French Riviera. Here, the outrageously rich mingle with the everyday French and tourists in luxurious shops, on the beautiful beaches and in the busy seaport. The bay offers crystal blue waters, sandy beaches and the famous Lerins Islands, including the Ile de Sainte Marguerite, where the Man in the Iron Mask was held captive for 11 years.
Cannes is also a great place to live with a bustling centre and splendid sandy public beaches where young people, teenagers and vacationing families traditionally meet up. You will be able to test out your French language skills with your French host family, as well as in the many shops, cafes, and restaurants.
